|Transhypnagogia - Grayscale Images - Karel Kulhavy|
Computer generated shapes patterns and hallucinations. This time Transhypnagogia was debugged to handle grayscale images properly. The computer got various pictures for inspiration and tried to mimic their structure. The depth of understanding is varied during each clip, which produces patterns of changing style.
